Today in the CBS-FM Hall of Fame we’re spotlighting ’80s rock AND we’re giving away free tickets to see Rock Of Ages on Broadway throughout the day!

Set in LA’s infamous Sunset Strip in 1987, Rock of Ages tells the tale of Drew and Sherrie. One is a young man from South Detroit, the other a small town girl, who are both in LA to make it big and find love.

Rock of Ages takes you back to a time of big bands, big egos, big guitar solos, and of course… BIG HAIR!

Click ahead so you can see more great vinyl labels of songs from the production that I’ve picked to spin today during Turntable Tuesday!

Check out the album art to Night Ranger’s power ballad “Sister Christian.” It peaked at number five on the charts and had a lengthy stay, tallying twenty-four weeks!

It takes a lot of hair spray to have that kind of hold on the charts!

NEXT PAGE “Harden My Heart”

Without a doubt, “Harden My Heart” is Quarterflash’s claim to fame, reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and taking number one on the Billboard Top Tracks chart.

And without Rock of Ages, the band might have been just a quarterflash in the pan!
